What are Rissoles?

So what is the difference between a rissole and a hamburger patty, you might be wondering. Actually they are quite similar but a hamburger is often made with just meat and perhaps some seasonings, while rissoles often feature all kinds of added ingredients like minced vegetables, breadcrumbs and more. Enjoy this beef and potato rissoles recipe with broccoli, green beans or mashed potatoes.

Hamburger patties are usually disc-shaped while rissoles can be thicker or even sausage-shaped or any shape you want really.

Rissoles vary in size and can be small enough to make a good size starter recipe or large enough to be the main course. Because this recipe is versatile you get the choice of which ingredients you include in the recipe, as well as the exact shape and size you want to make them.

Rissoles are a great way to use ground meat and you have plenty of scope because this dish is so versatile. In this recipe you will be including potatoes, pine nuts, currants and herbs, for a delicious flavor, but if you want to tweak this beef and potato rissoles recipe you can. One good tip is to use finely chopped or minced ingredients. This way the rissoles will hold together better. Something else which is a good idea is putting the shaped rissoles in the fridge to chill for half an hour or so, before cooking them, as this also helps them hold together. The larger the rissoles the more chilling they will need.
